The Mercedes-Benz 540K was introduced at the 1935 Paris Motor Show and was later brought to production later in the year. The 540K was designed by Friedrich Geiger and, like the 500K, came in a number of chassis options and body styles. There were three chassis to choose from: 117.3 in, 129.5 in, and 152.8 in. The two shorter wheelbases had the choice between a two seat cabriolet and a four seat coupe. On top of all the other body options, the longer wheelbase 540K was also given a limousine option. The limousine came with armored side panels and glass and was mainly used by heads of state. Because the 540K was one of the largest cars of its day it needed a hefty powerhouse. Thankfully, you could have the 540K with a straight-eight with a clutch engaged supercharger making 180 HP mated to either a four speed or optional five speed gearbox pushing the car to a 100 mph top speed.
